    "Great app. Only thing I feel it needs to be complete is some reference material for dipswitch settings for popular stand-alone LED lights for setting colors, strobes.. The Watts2Amps Calc would be better for people in the UK if you could include 240V as as choice for Voltage (the standard here in the UK)....I can get a close approximation using 220V but 240V would be more precise. It would also be great if you could allow user to enter number of fixtures at that Wattage so the total wattage being drawn by, say 4 fixtures @ 650W was displayed (the number of fixtures could default to 1 but allows users to change to any number). Thanks again."

    "Yeah, alright. This is a good app for me, the stage manager. Theaters are dark! Since humans haven't evolved to the point of night vision, i need a flashlight. This is a flashlight. It lets me see in the dark theaters. I'll need other apps as well, but this is a help."

    "This app helps me sort out everything and keep organized. I don't think I'd be able to find my head with all that I have going on without this app. It has so many tools, and once you learn what they all do, you can become a wizard of organizing your life and getting things done. I can share my notes with the people I work with too, so I don't have to find them and talk to them, and they can know what to do and what my thought process is easier. It has saved me so many times."
